I wasn't impressed by Cooper last year, but that's only my opinion. He didn't play in game 18 which was odd.  Humes only played against Edmonton in the last game where we sat a bunch of our starters. In either case small sample sizes.

We have 7  or 8 rookies coming to compete. One of Gaitor / Fenner might end up starting in the secondary and we added Rose at CB.

Really hard to tell who will win out at this point.
Cooper is back a) familiarity with playbook
                             b) outside shot as a returner

I believe Humes is list as 6-0, 200, Cooper is 5-9, 180. Humes is also known as a big hitter.

Interesting. Maybe Humes as a SAM option with Gaitor moving to corner or HB?

Last year's PR players have an early edge. With the knowledge of the play book and some game experience that helps. That could lead to becoming a starter in their 2nd year and great players.

The downside is massive competition in TC.  Players that spent most of the previous season on the PR usually have to make a push / move to the AR 44. If they don't there is a reluctance on both sides to return to the PR.

Not every import looks astounding in the 1st few games but look much better after their 2nd TC.

So Cooper or Humes might end up as top young DB' pushing to start. We won't know for awhile whether the 2019 rookies are the next Alexander or Sayles or the next Carmichael ( lol ).

Opportunities exist and it's going to be exciting to see who shines.

Just because I wasn't impressed by Cooper in 2018 doesn't mean he can't or won't take a giant step forward.

Wouldn't entirely surprise me to see him and maybe a 2019 rookie given chances to show versatility at SAM. I'm not expecting starting SAM to be someone besides Gaitor or Fenner but all the versatility means options are available.

The good thing is the overall talent we seem to have.

If Jones starts at Safety we will be much smaller at that position. Jones 6-1, 190. Loffler 6-4, 220/225. Is Jones quicker??

In theory he's quicker and reportedly a better cover guy. I'd rather have a safety that prevents a completion by coverage positioning than needing to hit a receiver to create an incompletion.

I mentioned in another string that the Bombers put Jones on the Injured Veteran roster. I know he had a season ending injury so I hope that's not a real concern.

Loffler while a big hitter wasn't particularly strong in coverage.

I agree Loffler was late to the party a few to many times. However when we didn't have an excellent MLB, Loffler was good support on the run because of his size.

The biggest factor in all star voting is name recognition, not play.

Loffler struggled at the start of the year, but I thought he was very good in the second half of the season.
